We received requests for multiple training programs for police driving courses, narcotics courses, and immigration and customs enforcement courses from the UAE prime contractor that we were working with in 2014 but unfortunately none of these courses materialized. Dr. James Ness, IPTACS Vice President for Criminal Justice Programs conducted Human Trafficking workshops to Abu Dhabi police leaders over a three week period in August of His presentations were well received and the initiative was published in the UAE media. The Human Trafficking Workshop was conducted twelve times over a three week period and covered topics related to victims of trafficking; identification of who the traffickers are; laws, legislation, and international conventions on human trafficking; and the global efforts to combat human trafficking.
